Why support us?

The CBF’s mission is to support independent, community-owned and operated media to tell vital local stories, connect people around the country and strengthen Australian democracy through greater participation, engagement, inclusion and cohesion.

At times of crisis – through bushfires, floods and the prolonged impact of COVID-19 – local communities turn to community media to provide vital health updates, travel warnings and restrictions to keep local communities safe and informed.

With over 30,000 volunteers sharing diverse ideas and opinions through 450 community media organisations across Australia, the community broadcasting sector is a trusted source of local news, information and cultural content.
